Fascinating work
In the 1970s fashion star Valentino lavished a sitting room at his country house near Rome with an Orientalist fabric of his own design. Indian glass paintings hang above the sofa, while a menagerie of Roberto Estevez ostrich-egg objets d’art is clustered on the cocktail table. The Moroccan carpet adds yet another layer of pattern. by florence

"Stephen Wiltshire. This young artist is grabbing a lot of attention by the likes of CBS and other national news outlets. Stephen has been drawing cities since being diagnosed with autism at a young age, saying it’s his way to express himself. What’s unique about this artist though is that all he needs is a 20 minute helicopter ride above New York and after 7 days, 12 pens, and a lot of music on his ipod, he finishes the massive 18 ft accurate depiction of the city all from memory. He’s so accurate that when drawing Rome, he drew the exact number of columns in the Pantheon. His work is being shown at Brooklyn’s Pratt Institute along with his permanent gallery in the Royal Opera Arcade, Pall Mal." by jana
